    "By common consent, Ruth was the hardest hitter of history; a fine fielder, if not a finished one; an inspired base runner, seeming to do the right thing without thinking. He had the most perfect co-ordination of any human animal I ever knew." - Hugh Fullerton, 1936 (Chicago sports writer, 1893-1930's)

                    • Tim Murnane's Death Benefit Game, Fenway Park, Boston, September 27, 1917. Tim Murnane, former ML player (1872-78) / Boston sports writer (1888-1917), died unexpectedly, February 7, 1917.

                      The AL scheduled a benefit game between an AL All-Star team and the Boston Red Sox, for his widow.

                      The AL All-Stars were, sitting atop railing: L-F: Hughie Jennings, Walter Johnson, Stuffy McInnis, Steve O'Neill, Joe Jackson, Ray Chapman, Ty Cobb, Buck Weaver, Willie O'Connor (Mascot).
                      Kneeling: L-R: Howard Ehmke, Rabbit Maranville, Connie Mack (Mgr., standing in civilian suit), Wally Schang, Tris Speaker, Urban Shocker, Tom Faftery (in civilian suit).


                      This team lost to Red Sox pitcher Babe Ruth, 2-0. Urban Shocker/Howard Ehmke held Boston scoreless for the 1st 6 innings before Duffy Lewis drove in the winning runs off Walter Johnson in the 8th. A crowd of 17,000 raised $13,000. for the cause.

                      Will Rogers performed his 'rope work and other range stunts, female members of the Ziegfeld Follies sold score cards. Babe Ruth won a fungo-hitting contest at 402 feet (Walter Johnson was 3rd at 360 feet), and Joe Jackson took the throwing prize with a toss of 396 feet, defeating Ty Cobb, Tris Speaker and Babe Ruth. Duffy Lewis of the Red Sox and Clarence (Tillie) Walker of the Phil. Athletics tied for second with tosses of 384'6".
